Which broadcasters use which codecs?




I'm trying to find out which satellite companies uses which codecs for SD and SH broadcasting. Does anyboy know where I could go to find this information?

Check the Lyngsat website. For digital television MPEG-2 is by far the most popular video codec and all but exclusive when it comes to SD. (I think that in the US DirecTV use MPEG-4 AVC also for SD.) Audio codecs in use include MPEG-2, dolby digital and dolby pro-logic.
